Stimulus is a Brooklyn born rapper/dj/producer who has made some noise over the last couple years working alongside Chris Daddy Dave and Bilal to name a couple. For his newest project he channels his inner Brooklynite and takes some elements from his favorite Jimi tracks. He has crafted Stimmi Hendrix and if “Electric Land (Bklyn #1 Edit) is any indication then we will not want to miss it. While 3 Stacks will certainly garner some acclaim for his portrayal of the music legend, it is equally assured that Stimulus will make some noise. Peace.

JustMe (Scribbling Idiots) links up with Deacon The Villain for some hip hop martial arts. Deacon provides the instrumental back drop and hook on JustMe’s verbal onslaught. If you do not have Full Disclosure from JustMe and Illect Recordings you should check it out. It’s worth the investment. It helped me get through some tough times over the past year. I can’t wait to hear what Illect has in store with his next release.
